This Behind-The-Scenes 'Justice League' Featurette Reveals A Lot About Aquaman — VIDEO
While a new trailer for Justice League may not be on it's way just yet (we still have to practice that thing called "patience," guys... somehow, anyway), the film's director Zack Snyder took to Twitter on Friday to say "thank you" to his cast and crew, as well as share an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Justice League filming experience. And, while all of the actors appear to have trained particularly hard to prepare for their roles as DC Entertainment superheroes, one actor in particular seems to stand out from the crowd: Jason Momoa playing Aquaman.
Following his role as Khal Drogo in HBO's Emmy-winning series, Game Of Thrones, Momoa is already in shape enough to kick some serious butt. However, with a cast full of heroes by his side, tons and tons of villains we have yet to see, and a trident of his very own, this actor is proving there is nothing he can't do. Between his impressive strength training, trident twirling skills, and pick-pocketing genius when it comes to hilariously stealing Wonder Woman's sword, Momoa is certainly the one to watch in this featurette. This actor is basically a real-life superhero — both when the cameras rolling and when it's not.
As it turns out, this featurette might be indicative of things to come: It's beginning to look like Aquaman may receive an unexpectedly large amount of screentime. "The whole mythology of Aquaman is pretty amazing. There’s so many things to tell, and there’s a whole backstory that’s just amazing," Momoa shared in an interview with Entertainment Weekly prior to filming. "There’s a lot of surprises coming. I think, yeah, he’s been cast aside. But, um [laughs] times are going to change now, buddy."
Filming for Justice League was clearly an adventure like none other for the actor. And, in accordance with his personal end of filming, Momoa took to Instagram to share his very own behind-the-scenes photo and heartfelt caption for the film's cast and crew.
